Kim Family Auction

I am donating a piece of artwork to the Kim family benefit art + craft auction. This auction was set up by my friend, Gerrie Congdon, and her two daughters who are friends of Kati Kim.
You will remember that the Kim family, from San Francisco was lost in a remote region of Oregon early in December. Kati and her two small daughters were found after many days. Her husband, James, had left the car to seek help. Sadly, he succumbed to the elements. This story was a focus of national attention and especially here in Oregon where many of us are familiar with the remote areas where they were searching. The search was long and expensive for the family and the results, at first, miraculous with the discovery of mother and children, alive and reasonably well, and ultimately tragic when James was found.
This is the piece that I am offering for auction.
Bidding will start on January 3. Click on the Kim Family Auction graphic at the top of this entry to see all the other artwork and crafts that are being auctioned, as well as details on how to bid on items.


  1. it's a lovely piece too. I hope this and the other donations raise lots for them, it's bad enough going through what they are without still having to worry about search expenses!

  2. btw, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
